Big Shot embossing mats WOW!!

Good afternoon everyone,

Hope this finds you all well.  I’ve been busy in the craft room trying to get my Christmas cards finished still a work in progress.

I have been a little hesitant about using the new embossing mats but now that I have, I don’t think I can put them down!  How versatile are these little beauties!  All your framelits and thinlets can now become both embossed and cut!  Doubling the effects on your projects.  Check out this card I did using the Peaceful Poinsettia thinlets.  I hope you can see from the photo that it has embossed the image instead of just cutting it out.  I have then used the outline thinlet to actually cut the entire flower out,  I did it on whisper white cardstock but I then coloured it using my cherry cobler stampin blends for a shaded look.  You could just use Cherry Cobler or any colour cardstock.  The foliage is old olive cardstock but cut out using the sprig punch.  The background is the tufted embossing folder from the Annual Catalogue. The card base is Very Vanilla.  The sprig punch and the Peaceful Poinsettia are only available until 2nd January to if you would like to order these products, you had better be quick.  I also used the metallic gold thread and a strip of DSP across the middle of the card.

If you would like more information on how to use the embossing mats, please email or call me at any time!  or phone 0419721561.

Hope you like today’s card.  I was so impressed about how the embossing mats work!  They are available in the annual catalogue as well.

Hope you have a great day.

Until next time!






Double the use of your Big Shot!

Hi Everyone,

I just got delivery of the new big shot embossing mats!  Wow!  If you have a big shot or similar type of machine, these mats are an awesome addition to your product base.  All your cutting dies can now become embossing folders or cutting and embossing!   Wow!  Here is a card I have just made using the Swirly Snowflake die as an embossing folder.  So easy to do.  I have also used the new Sprig Punch available in the new annual catalogue.  A great addition to your punch collect.  Great for any projects.  This card is a little different to a normal Christmas Card as in its all black and white but who said we had to stick to traditional colours right?  You probably can’t see the glimmer effect from the photo but I have sprayed the new white glimmer paint as well and it gives such a beautiful effect.  I also used black embossing powder for the sentiment.  I used the retired white organza ribbon, just about out of that gorgeous ribbon!

Here is a video from Stampin Up demonstrating the fantastic embossing mats.  Thought you might like to take a look!  WOW!

Hope you like today’s card.
